Programme Note
Anders Brødsgaard Joker (1990),
Anders Brødsgaard JOKER, ATTACCA and REQUIEM

'Joker' was inspired by Keith Jarret's piano style, parti-cularly as it unfolds in his famous concerts of solo improvisation. The title comes from the fact that a kind of 'joker effect' is built-in in the rhythmic play which disturbs the 'arithmetical problem' and forces the music to continue everytime a four-layered polyrhythm is about to come out.
'Attacca' is a wild(ly) uncontrolled outburst, which starts
in the highest layers of cloud of four rows of overtones and gradually falls down in a more differentiated diatonic domain.
'Requiem' was composed in the memory of my father and the piece is about 'hearing voices'.
